    gradient dither option?

    web.boards Level 1

      When do you want to choose to dither a gradient vs. not doing it?

       

      Thanks.

          8 bit formats like GIF and PNG 8 don't use a sufficient number of colors to display smooth gradients. Dithering tiles the pixels of the image in a way that softens the transition from one color to another and creates the illusion of more than 256 colors.  It works well pretty well for small images like icons. For images with large areas of gradients, or photographs, export in JPEG format instead
